In general, complex fracture network was formed after SRV fracturing operation in tight reservoirs, and the horizontal well yield was increased by changing the seepage field near the fracturing wells. At present, there was few weight analysis about the influence of SRV fracturing influence parameters of tight reservoirs on fracturing effect at different periods after the production of horizontal wells. By establishing the two-phase finite element equation which was applicable to the tight oil reservoir and water, finite element numerical simulation of complex fracture network was carried out, and the orthogonal experiment and grey correlation method were adopted to analyze the influence degree of horizontal well volume fracturing influence parameters on productivity of oil wells within 10 years. The results showed that the fracture conductivity determines the initial fracturing productivity of horizontal wells, and the fracture length determined the decline rate of daily production of horizontal wells and the level of steady production in the later stage. With the continuous production of fracturing wells, the fracture length replaced the fracture conductivity and became a key factor affecting the yield. The research on the influence degree of each influence parameter on the fracturing effect in different periods in which horizontal wells could provide theoretical support for the construction and design of SRV fracturing horizontal wells in tight reservoirs.
